My Anjelia has the most active imagination of anyone in our household, at any developmental stage. . . combined! She says the silliest things. She recently got the chills and said that the Spirit came over her. We have a cooling machine in the backyard where she goes when she gets too hot. I’ve been warning her sisters since Anjelia was four that this fairy loving, imagination of hers won’t last forever. At some point, that magical time ends. Well, Anjelia is going on eight now and we’ve yet to see it diminish! I hope and pray that God will continue to use her imagination throughout her life.
She recently created artwork for the entire neighborhood to enjoy. It started with this simple paper with leaves taped to it that she collected on an evening walk. It turned into a stop sign pole covered in art created from things she found in the yard. Unfortunately it rained before I could get a pic of her display.
You can toch.
She wrote messages on the papers, encouraging people to touch and enjoy!
I wish I could capture a little of her whimsical childhood and bottle it up to cherish. These days go quickly, as I’ve learned all too well with my older girls. Here’s to another summer of saving dandelion puffs in jewelry boxes and fireflies (fairies) in jars.
